Old Town Hall - Ratusz, Wroclaw: 13 reviews and 35 photos
It's the city's town hall and it's located right in the middle of the main square (rynek). This building is part of a larger block of buildings: it's so big that 3 alleys run through it. Walking along them it's very quuiet and peaceful: one has the feeling of having left the hustle-and-bustle of the city behind. The town hall itself is a very suggestive building on the southern side of the block. It`s built partly in Gothic style and partly in Reneissance style, since it took nearly two centuries to complete and decorate. Next to it stands an amazing bell tower. Some interesting details of the Town Hall are the 1580 astronomical clock on the facade, the pregierz (medieval whipping post where they carried out public floggings) in front of it, and the curious bear fountain on the right side of it.
Directions: in the centre, in the miffle of the main square
